Charity trustees are free to make decisions for their charity as long as these are within the powers of the law and the terms of their governing document. As a result, we do not have the power to overrule a valid decision taken by the trustees. If you do not agree with their decision, you should first speak to the trustees about it.
Additionally, we cannot usually become involved in the following issues, as it is not within our regulatory powers to do so:
- Fundraising methods. See our Fundraising page for further information.
- Employment issues, including
- Unfair dismissal
- Grievances such as discrimination, bullying and harassment
- Terms of employment
or Citizens Advice Scotland
may be able to help you with these.
- Contracts that the charity has entered into, including when payment has not been made for outstanding bills.
